Gov. Throws Insurance Insiders to the Wolfs
Gov. Charlie Crist yesterday signed an insurance bill that freezes rates for Citizens Property Insurance Corp. customers another year, until 2009, but he vetoed $600,000 budgeted to fund a 19-member commission (nine of whom were going to come from the insurance industry) whose sole focus was to shrink the state run insurer.
Crist continues to send the message that he will get the Florida insurance industry under control - and that includes the industry 'organisers', including the lobbyists.
